During this nine year period there were 408 executions in England and Wales, comprising 385 men and 23 women.

The period from 1828 to 1836 saw the ending of capital punishment for crimes other than murder and attempted murder.

31.5% of those executed during this time suffered for these two offences. 

 

After 1836 only they were the only crimes, in practice, attracted the death penalty. 

 

Unless specified, executions took place outside the county jail in the place mentioned below.

 

Ages where known are from newspaper reports and should be considered as a guide.

 

Spellings of names are taken from newspaper accounts and hand written court records.
